    Thanks for the stellar example of how men can be just as catty as women.

    I'm sorry, I don't pay my taxes so he can come and read on the Senate floor to his kids. If he cares so much about his kids he would be at home with them and reading to them. Not wasting time and money to do it in a professional setting.

    Better wake up because Cruz is calling your attention to what is going on in D.C. and the big power grab that is happening. If this is all you got out of what he did then you are part of the problem not part of the solution.

    Some people claim Paul Harvey was crazy too and now the same comments about Ted Cruz. Pay attention to Harvey and see if he sounds so crazy now.

    Pay attention, Paul Harvey had you in mind when he made this recording and yet you don't seem to get it.

    He just tried it.

    A few far right losers on this forum might buy into his comparison, but not enough of the 300 million potential American voters ever will. The only way that Cruz will ever see the inside of the White House is as a visitor.

    The Senate had finished its morning business before Cruz was recognized the floor.

    Your pettiness is astounding. Going to quibble over 3 or 4 minutes compared to the wasted years of some Republicans in the Senate not taking every opportunity to fight Obamacare from being implemented and have instead become appeasers.

    What you fail to recognize is that Obama's incompetence my make the GOP the permanent party. Better days are indeed ahead once Obama leaves office or this country is really screwed. How Obama supporters can continue to support this empty suit is beyond comprehension.

    I can't put my finger on it, but Cruz seems somehow fundamentally different. I wonder whether he envisions a path to the White House that's not bounded by the legal process.

    Believe whatever you want to believe, it won't put Cruz in the White House. That will take the votes of a lot more Americans than those who voted for Romney last year.

    Don't take my word for it, just wait and see. He will end up like Mitt Romney did last November.Cruz is out of touch with most Americans and that will be clear in any future election.
